Photos of the Kaiserreich

So, there was a recent polite and constructive discussion about the russian empire on Kaiserreich, and so I wondered about how would things look like if the restore empire went full Alexander III, and I'm choosing Alexander III as a example of a era for the empire as he was not a conservative like Nicholas II, he was the reactionary as he is the figure of the pogroms (Nicky II ended the pogroms). I had this campaign being as autocratic and reactionary as possible, and here are some images of it.

Vladimir Purishkevich (1870-1938) was the first prime minister of the newly restored Russian empire, known for being the figure that would execute the orders of Tsar Kyril and as the leader of the autocratic party on the government, he expanded the worker's rights on russia, led a program of industrialization, continued Stolypin's era land reform, but on another hand reinstated the anti semite legislation from the old empire era, allowed the okhrana to instate political officers in the army and supressed liberal moviments in general, while putting conservative moviments into line. Some compared his black hundreds to Codreanu greenshirts, and all his actions happened under the eyes of the Tsar and under approval by the majority of the russian public and political scene.

Okhrana (the guard) political comissars. While the russian empire faced few retreats during the reclamation war, some remarked that "it took more courage to retreat than to advance" due their watchfull eyes.

Russian imperial tanks advancing on the operation Brusilov, 1941, from the baltic sea to Ukraine, 2200 000 soldiers and 800 light and 200 heavy tanks advanced on all fronts at once, being the largest offensive in history. The Russian army was received as liberators by the locals in eastern Ukraine and Belarus, western ukraine was divided, but after the reinstation of the russification policies the anti unification ukrainians became a slightly majority. The baltics rejected the russian annexation, and remained a hotspot until the russification policies were mitigated on the 1990s.

Postcard of Tsar Vladimir III Romanov. Crowned in 1938, he replaced the late Vladimir Purishkevich with the popular general Anton Denikin who kept most of the anti semite policies of his sucessor, but scaled down the political repression slightly to concentrate the russian efforts on the military. By the 1960s, with most of the tsarist old guard dead he allowed minor democratisation but kept the autocracy until his death in 1994. By 2000 when our scenario ends, Russia is still a paternal autocracy, a right wing version of China if you will, but CCP China allows a level of ethnic autonomy that is not present outside the baltics and Moldova in Russia (However, in moldova it's kept since Romania is a allied monarchy).

"His Imperial Majesty, if you seek peace, if you seek the best for the Russian Empire and Eastern Europe, if you seek to allow your people to be really free, come here to this border. Mr. Vladimir, allow political reform. Mr. Vladimir, allow the 19th century to end! "
US President Ronald Reagan on a speech in Hannover, on the German Kingdom, 1987. There was a initial belief that with the collapse of the internationale, the russian bloc would also collapse, but their conservative structure survived on.

Victor Atiyeh, president of the United States of America (81-89, died in office), though by then it was known almost exclusively as the Pacific States of America, with a border on the Rockies. Known for protectionism that safeguarded the PSA's lumber industry from the Kingdom of Canada and other rivals in the pacific. Atiyeh had a rough foreign policy, nearly coming to conflict with the Commonwealth of America numerous times due to Consul Spencer's bellicose aggression. This led to the PSA joining the Reichspakt, hoping to deture Commonwealth agression. The president had hoped to join the Entente, but the attempt to do so failed in the House of Representatives, citing the fact that the Entente required many trade agreements that would undermine Pacifician industry.

A Rocky Mountain Ceasefire between the PSA and AUS until the 70s when the AUS broke the peace, took the PSA and united America under a slightly more racist AFP under George Wallace. The various large reservations like the Navajo had used the War to achieve a lot of autonomy in the PSA (the ones in the rest of the country were broken up by the AUS during the War), the IIA ended the Reservation system and dispersed the natives across America to destroy their cultural identity and "Americanize" them.

While Boris Savinkov's "National Republicanism" was a uniquely Russian invention, many outside Russia adapted it to their own views. Some of them came to lead pro-Russian states in Europe and otherwise.

Fritz Dorls, a German nationalist, was a proponent of "National Erneuerungs", or National Renewal. His ideology was a unique, anti-monarchist form of German nationalism, and borrowed from both Voynism and the revolutionary nationalism of the revolutions of 1848.
Following the Second Weltkrieg, Dorls would be instituted as the leader of the Russian-aligned German People's State based in Breslau.
